Charlie Bucket is a poor boy whose family can barely scrape enough money together to buy him a chocolate bar. Willy Wonka (Gene Wilder) announces he has hidden five golden tickets in some of his chocolate bars, and those who find one can visit his amazing chocolate factory. When Charlie finds a ticket he thinks all of his dreams have come true. He takes his grandfather on the tour led by the eccentric Wonka. But the trip turns out to be much more than Charlie expected. Contains some very mild language, mild threat and slapstick violence.

Did you know?

  • This is the only film that Peter Ostrum, who played Charlie Bucket, ever made. He went on to become a veterinarian.
  • There is a scene where Willy Wonka drinks from a flower cup and then eats the cup. The cup was made from wax and Gene Wilder had to keep chewing the wax until the scene ended, at which point he would spit it out.
  • The opening credits sequence was filmed at a real chocolate factory in Switzerland.
  • Gene Wilder requested Wonka's somersault scene, saying that it would set the tone for his character. He wanted to portray Wonka as someone whose actions were completely unpredictable.
